Anti-fouling and bottom-scrubbing for cleaner, healthier seas
Antifoul paint is unfortunately a very toxic substance, full of chemicals and microplastics.
Studies now show that in our inshore waters and sheltered seas, ship and boat coatings are the principle source of microplastics pollution.
Cleaner Marina Tips
- Let's provide berth-holders and boat owners with facilities to safely and carefully remove old antifoul paint.
- We can also encourage a shift towards biocide-free and paint-free antifoul techniques, such as sonic devices or films such as Finsulate.
Let's make sure we keep these toxins out of our seas!
